i was looking around for wrist protection and found marware offers a good one but its not track pad protection is there anything like that around?

pref from the same company so the trackpad and wrist guard are the same!!

i hate the marware one my dad has it on his macbook and the corners are all peeling up, and we both take perfect care of it.

odd though, it came with tracpad and button protection, i thought.

and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

This invisible shield product seems degrading.

I mean, to waltz around on school grounds with a condom like laptop seems to be a very geeky idea.

Don't get me wrong, I value my MacBook much so and my inner self says to me "protect thy MacBook" but like...

People are just going to stare and say "that guy loves his laptop a tad bit too much".

For example: at school, there was a guy next to me pointing at my screen.
I told him "Touch the LCD and I'll chop your finger off".

And there was another guy next to me with a plastic sheet sticky taped over his LCD.
Although it was practical, I just thought it gave the wrong message.

Do you think I am just being over critical?
Maybe I need to relax.

umm...

no i understand what your saying..

i guess some people are a bit OCD about their MacBooks and therefor just want them to remain in perfect condition forever and ever?

i however just want it to look like it hasnt been thrwn around like a football scuffed and all marked lol

I take good care of my MacBook.

Spent an entire day searching for the perfect laptop bag.
At the Apple store, their laptop bag selection was very limited and the designs all looked the same.
Found the winner at a general computer store.

While it is inside, it is very safe.
It sits inside a cusion protective envelope.
The bag itself is quite sturdy.
It does not obviously appear to be a laptop bag, so that decreases my chances of getting mugged.

All in all, it looks just like a normal college bag.
The only thing is, there is no room for my textbooks.

i would advise the invisible sheild, and if you don't like the look, maybe just put on the wrist and trackpad ones.
